Hardware Highlights – Increasing Awareness of BHMA Standards

Wednesday, February 8, 2023

BHMA will be featuring Hardware Highlights in a year-long campaign with the goal of increasing awareness of BHMA standards, both individually and as a whole. A Hardware Highlight will be shared weekly on social media along with a series of eight blogs that will be scheduled over the course of 2023. These Hardware Highlights blogs will be grouped by topics including Control the Door, Hang the Door, Lock the Door – Residential, Mechanical, and Electrical, Trim the Door and Door Assembly. We’ll provide insights on the who, what, where, when and why of each standard group. We’re hoping every follower will learn new information and gain insight on the significance of each group of standards
